St. Anthony, Kyazanga
St. Anthony's Kyazanga Secondary School, a co-educational secondary school run by the Catholic Church, is located in the Lwengo district of southwestern Uganda. The Kyazanga region is particularly structurally weak. Almost all families live exclusively from agriculture, whose yields make survival possible, but hardly generate income. The St. Anthony School has been part of the ADEPT support programme since 2017 in order to be able to offer the young people living there a high-quality education. By 2027, the rural school is to become a regional education centre with an agricultural focus.
Project 2019/2020: Construction of a training workshop for agriculture
A training workshop for agriculture is also currently being built. The school will receive modern agricultural machinery in early 2020. The training workshop will be used for safe storage of the equipment, but above all, the students will also learn how to maintain, care for and repair the equipment there. The project is supported by the Erbacher Foundation, the Beurer Foundation Ulm, Güttler GmbH in Kirchheim unter Teck and by a private birthday donation.
Project 2020: Construction of an administration centre
